A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on belief, ignorance, imagination, mind, and people

Pettiness of mind, ignorance and presumption are the cause of stubbornness, because stubborn people only want to believe what they themselves can imagine, and they can imagine very few things.

Magdeleine Sable (c. 1599 - 1678)
